A big week begins in Manchester City’s quest to secure a top four place and Champions League football for next season. Two huge games in London see the Blues travel to likely champions Chelsea on Wednesday, but before then it’s another trip to the Emirates as City face Arsenal.
It will be a battle between two of the Premier League’s great entertainers at a ground City haven’t won on in over four years now. You have to go back to the start of 2013, when James Milner and Edin Džeko struck, for the last time City were victorious away at Arsenal.
The Gunners have lost six of their last nine league games, the majority of them away, and Pep Guardiola will be looking to add to their struggles today.
Andre Marriner, who gained infamy among City fans for his horror show in our game against Spurs in January, is today’s referee, and here are the lineups:
Arsenal XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Coquelin, Walcott, Özil, Sanchez, Welbeck
Manchester City XI: Caballero, Clichy, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Sané, Silva, Sterling, Navas, Aguero
Today’s match can be viewed on Sky Sports 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
